This means that internationals Victor Costello and Brian O'Meara are omitted in favour of Des Dillon and Brian O'Riordan respectively. The pre-season has also been good to Dave McAllister, the former Terenure schoolboy claiming the outhalf spot with Christian Warner forming half the centre partnership with David Quinlan.
Kidney has also been boosted by the return of Kieran Lewis after close to a year on the sidelines with a cruciate knee injury. The former Ireland Under-21 (10 caps) / Ireland Schools (4 caps) star has been named amongst the replacements.
